Winter Weather and the Tires
During colder months, the air in the tires will start to get lower than they otherwise should be. Make sure that you check the air pressure often, so that the tires are always at the proper air pressure. Anytime that a tire is getting low on air, and often, you will want to bring the vehicle in. It could be caused by damage or a nail in the tire. When this happens, you will want to have it repaired and fixed quickly. Ignoring it will only make the issue worse, and increase the chance for further damage. You will want to check the tread wear as well on each tire. The tread will help with proper handling and control of the vehicle.
Top off the Fluids
Also remember to top off all fluid levels under the hood. Doing so can help keep the engine running efficiently. When the oil becomes old, it will turn into something like sludge like mixture. This can cause extra wear and stress on the engine. You will also want to check under your vehicle if there is a sign of a leak or puddle. If you notice this, always make sure that you have this looked at and inspected. Also remember to top off the windshield washer fluid for your vehicle as well. This way you will be able to see properly and clear off any road grime.
